Tickets for apprentices and trainees

For apprentices/trainees we offer reduced-price monthly season tickets, the supersaver all-year season ticket and, since 01.08.2020 the BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees - subsidized by your employer and the City of Hamburg authorities.

The take-along bonus

Between 01.09.2020 and 31.12.2020 inclusive, season ticket holders can benefit from an extra bonus during the validity of their ticket: within the existing area of validity of their ticket, they can take along 1 other person and up to 3 children aged 6–14 at no extra charge from Mondays to Fridays starting at 11 am, on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays all day. Supplementary tickets and upgrade tickets for Sprinter bus/regional trains RB/RE are then valid for all those you take along under this ruling. As always, children under 6 travel free of charge anyway.

When you buy a ticket for an apprentice/trainee you will need to submit a filled out entitlement form. This must be validated by the company where you are doing your apprenticeship/traineeship (and then by the relevant Chamber of Crafts or Chamber of Commerce).

Apprentices/trainees will automatically be sent the form (entitlement form) by post when their apprenticeship/traineeship contract has been officially registered by the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and Crafts, or they can otherwise get it at our service centres or via the our Infoline on 040/19 449.

1 compared with buying 12 monthly season tickets (standard price)

Starting on 01.08.2020 the HVV is offering the BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees as an all-year season ticket. The precondition for buying it is that your place where you are doing your apprenticeship/traineeship is located in Hamburg and that the employer is willing to subsidize you. The BonusTicket for apprentices/trainees is valid on the entire network.

It is so easy – just a few steps to get your monthly season ticket

When you apply for a monthly season ticket for apprentices/trainees or an all-year season ticket without Bonus at our service centres you will already be issued with a provisional ticket which you can use to travel immediately. You will then receive your personalized HVV Card with your photo on it about 2 weeks later by post. By the way, the entitlement form for the reduced-price ticket must always be carried together with the ticket. Monthly season tickets for apprentices/trainees are valid for the calendar month printed on them from 0.00 on the first of the month till close of services on the last day of the month. 

Upgrade fare for 1 journey

The upgrade fare for Sprinter bus/1st class services RB/RE for 1 journey is 2.10 € (valid in fare rings A-F).

Supplementary ticket

To travel outside the area of validity of your season ticket, you will need a supplementary ticket

Purchase in advance

You can buy all season tickets up to 2 months in advance at our service centres, you can even buy the all-year season ticket from the comfort of your home online (German only).

Changing the area of validity

If you want to change the area of validity on your season ticket, please present it at one of our service centres.


Season tickets are not transferable.

Social Ticket

As a citizen of Hamburg, you can get a subsidy of 22,20 € per person and month towards the cost of HVV monthly and all-year season tickets as well as on the ProfiTicket from the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg with the Social Ticket.
